This is Maggie, and she’s sensitive. Not sensitive in that she needs a comforting pet when a loud truck zooms by or that she loves hugs. Those are both true, but Maggie is an ESP (extrasensory pupper). She sees dead people. Maybe you have your own ESP. When Maggie barks in the middle of the […]
This is Rudy, and he loves to play tag. He’s got that fantastic, Lemmy-esque head of hair that catches the wind while he shreds the grass and mulch and porch beneath his feet, and you can almost hear him wailing Ace of Spades while sister Mattie’s the perfect accompaniment, jammin on drums as she goes […]
Oh, Bam, the cure for any Monday feelings He don’t care what day of the week it is or what the clock says – he just knows it’s walk time! (with a side of bear hug/growly toy time) I felt like we should’ve had the Rocky theme playing for us today – as we wound […]

This is EmmyLou. I’ve gotten to know her real well during this quarantine while her momma goes out to save the world. EmmyLou didn’t always have her life so together, though. She tells me there was a time she’d run bags of Ol’ Roy missing their tax stickers over the mountains. Sometimes she’d have to […]
This is Aubrey (who recently turned four but doesn’t look a day over two!). You know that feeling when you put on socks or underwear fresh from the dryer? All warm and cozy, reminding you of snuggling on the couch with a blanket and hot drink during a thunderstorm… That’s Aubrey. She is the living, […]
My Dearest Birdbane (named Chill by the humans): It is now day 26 of the crisis I am calling, They. Just. Won’t. Leave. The humans have interrupted so many First Midmorning and Second Late Afternoon naps, yet have the audacity to be annoyed when I must gambol about during the night. The house echoes with […]
